Our son just started Warrior Silat and is absolutely loving it. Starting with the classes, they have great teachers and helpers there to really individualize training. They take their time and help build each child’s confidence. Our son is truly building self esteem and has wonderful mentorship from great leaders. With two classes a week, I know he’s staying active and getting stronger each time! The building is very nice and clean with cubbies for the kids to store belongings during class. Their equipment package is reasonably priced and includes the gi, socks, belt, and a Warrior Silat book bag. Outside of class they do extra activities for the kids like a family night and a parent night which gives kids a chance to spend time together. They also have a monthly “homework” that focuses on values like leadership and service. I also love that they utilize an online portal to track payments, belt status, and attendance. We highly recommend Warrior Silat and if you want to try it out they offer two free classes.
